Building Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships

De La Salle College is committed to the education of the whole person – academic, spiritual, physical, emotional and psychological. This commitment is clear through the Personal Development program, which harnesses the ‘Building Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships program’. 

For a period a week, all students embark on this powerful program, which is designed to build students’ social, emotional and positive relationship skills. We know that efforts to promote social and emotional skills in young people have been shown to improve health-related outcomes and subjective wellbeing. It also reduces antisocial behaviours, including engagement in violence.

The learning materials cover topics such as; 

  • Emotional Literacy
  • Personal Strengths
  • Positive Coping
  • Problem Solving
  • Stress Management and 
  • Help-Seeking.

Please have a conversation with the De La Salle student in your life – ask him about Personal Development and what he has been doing. It is vitally important!

Year 12 Formal

On Thursday 13 June, Year 12 students came together to celebrate their formal. Together with their partners, our students danced and enjoyed each other’s company well into the night. It was wonderful to see the De La Salle students looking so dapper, and their wonderful behaviour on the night is a testament to their development into impressive young men.

Lasallian Leadership Retreat 

On Tuesday 18 June, our Tiverton Campus leaders were privileged to be involved in a Lasallian Leadership Retreat. 

During the day, the students took part in a number of activities that had them reflect on who they are, how they want to lead and how they form relationships with those around them. 

The students left the day with a new realisation that positive interactions and affirmations can help to shape the world around them – their relationships have the power to change things!
